Full Void

 

Responding to the rich textural qualities of charcoal, Mary Scott and David Edgar explore darkness and the void through a series of abstract architectural and geological spaces.

In contrast to the traditional concept of the void as an empty or vacuous space, the artists engage charcoal as a medium that gives dimensionality to blackness, and explores the visual and psychological responses to dark.

The works exploit connections between charcoal as a natural material derived from the earth and the philosophical and affective dimensions of the architectural void. The exhibition expands the parameters of tonal drawing.
